Too large, too sturdy, too good.

On Sept. 10, 2016, Gennadiy Golovkin scored a punishing fifth-round stoppage over Kell Brook to retain his IBF and WBC middleweight titles on the O2 Area in London. The official time was 1:57.

Golovkin was unbeaten in 35 fights with 32 knockouts. Legitimately feared by a few of the world’s greatest middleweights, the Kazakhstan-born destroyer was actually struggling to safe a 160-pound opponent.

Step ahead unbeaten IBF welterweight titleholder Kell Brook.

Many felt the Sheffield star had a dying want. Whereas Brook was bursting on the seams to make 147 kilos, he was a medium-sized junior middleweight at greatest. To provide away measurement to a fighter as formidable and expert as Golovkin was a catastrophe ready to occur.

In the long run, it might have been worse.

Brook tried his coronary heart out and scored with some implausible mixture work. Nothing occurred. Golovkin, accustomed to taking punches from middleweights, soaked up the very best his smaller challenger needed to provide and waited to hit him again. When he did land, the harm was catastrophic.

By the fifth, Brook had sustained a damaged eye socket and he was struggling terribly to carry Golovkin off. Coach Dominic Ingle had seen sufficient and ascended the ring steps whereas waving the white towel frantically.
